Two people were killed and 10 others injured as a bus overturned and fell into a roadside ditch at Keotchira in Sreenagar upazila of the district on Tuesday night.

The deceased were identified as Achia Khatun, 55, hailed from Holdia village in Lauhojong upazila and Shafiqul Islam, 32, from Kurigram.

Hasara Highway Police Station officer-in-charge Golam Morshed Talukder said a Mawa-bound bus of Gangchil Paribahan from Dhaka skidded off of the highway and fell into a roadside ditch as its driver lost control over the steering at 10:00pm, killing two passengers on the spot and injuring 10 others.

The injured were admitted to Sreenagar Upazila Health Complex, reports UNB.

"After a 45-minute effort, fire service men rescued a passenger who got stuck in the bus", he added.

Immediately after the accident, another bus coming from Dhaka fell into ditch at the same place. Fortunately, none was reportedly injured in the accident.
